Restylane®in Dedham

Restylane® injectables include a family of hyaluronic acid fillers that aim to rejuvenate and refresh the skin.

Among these is their premier product, known by the same name. Restylane® is used to help add volume to the mid-face region while reducing the appearance of facial folds and wrinkles. This procedure has been shown to deliver natural-looking results in patients over the age of 21.

At Dedham Medical Aesthetics, patients get access to a superior level of care and attention, delivered by expert aestheticians, Karen Merry and Nikki Chamberlain. Under the supervision of Harvard-trained and board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Michael Tantillo, patients receive access to high-end procedures that aim to beautify and revitalize their appearance.

What is Restylane®?

Restylane® is the first in the line of fillers procedure by Galderma Laboratories.

It can be used as a standalone treatment or in conjunction with other Restylane® brand fillers, such as Kysse. These injectables feature hyaluronic acid (HA), a naturally-occurring molecule that is found within the skin.

HA is coveted for its ability to deliver volume and much-needed moisture to aging cells. Since the body stops producing collagen gradually beginning in the mid-twenties to thirties, HA injections can be especially beneficial for helping keep skin looking smooth and youthful. Restylane® specifically targets moderate to severe facial folds and wrinkles.

What are the Benefits of Restylane®?

Injectable fillers can offer a wide range of benefits to patients who are seeking rejuvenating treatments. As aging is an inevitable part of life, Restylane® offers an excellent way to help reverse or slow down unwanted side effects, like wrinkles, facial folds, fine lines, and loss of volume.

In particular, Restylane® targets the skin around the cheeks, nose, and mouth. Additionally, as it is a non-surgical treatment, patients can enjoy reduced downtime, minimal redness, swelling, and bruising, and faster results than through traditional plastic surgery. When compared to similar fillers, Restylane® has been known to deliver longer-lasting results.

What Causes Facial Folds and Wrinkles?

Wrinkles, facial folds, loss of volume, sagging, drooping, and even changes to the facial shape can all be attributed to side effects of aging. These can happen to anyone, and while you can look into different methods to try and reverse, reduce, or prevent the effects, it is impossible to avoid the effects of aging completely.

In addition, external factors such as exposure to UV rays, harsh weather, and the elements can also impact the elasticity of your skin and cause wrinkles and folds to develop. Other things like smoking, diet, alcohol use and even stress can also impact your appearance this way.

Employing healthy habits and using products like moisturizer and sunscreen regularly can help to prevent any wrinkles or skin damage related to this.

How Restylane® Works

Restylane® is a non-surgical cosmetic treatment that is administered directly into the targeted areas in the face using a microneedle. Prior to your procedure, one of our expert aestheticians will administer a numbing agent, if desired, to help prevent any discomfort during the injections.

The hyaluronic acid formula will be injected just below the skin, where it will bind with the cells and help to fill out any free radicals caused by aging or external factors. The effects of Restylane® will develop over time, as the HA stimulates collagen production naturally within the skin.

Is Restylane® Right for Me?

Cosmetic treatments are not one-size-fits-all. At Dedham Medical Aesthetics, we customize our treatments based on the needs of our patients.

Restylane® FAQ

Injectable fillers are minimally-invasive and the sensation is compared to that of a pinprick. Additionally, to help prevent any pain during treatment, numbing agents can be administered about 30 minutes before injections. Ice and cold compresses can also be used before and after to help with any discomfort or swelling.

As one of the longer-lasting injectable treatment options, Restylane® boasts results of up to 18 months in areas such as nasolabial folds.
